Increase and Replenish the Supply or Resist the Lies




Only Decisive Force Can Prevail in Afghanistan


KABUL 9/15/09 -- An improvised bomb attack killed two U.S. service members Monday in southern Afghanistan where U.S. and NATO troops have stepped up their operations against insurgents in recent months, NATO said.
Also in the south, a British soldier was killed in an attack on a foot patrol and another NATO service member died in a blast Sunday, NATO and British officials said Monday. {more}
As of Monday, Sept. 14, 2009, at least 752 members of the U.S. military had died in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Uzbekistan as a result of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in late 2001, according to the Defense Department.


Besides the possibility of dying or being maimed, service members have no rights.
Vaccinations against the H1N1 flu virus will be mandatory for all uniformed personnel.


The Growing Problem in Afghanistan - Ron Paul


WASHINGTONPresident Obama rejected comparisons on Monday between the war in Afghanistan and the conflict in Vietnam a generation ago, but he expressed concern about “the dangers of overreach” and pledged a full debate before making further decisions on strategy.

The similarities are the dead.

Juden was proud to be a sniper, his family said.








One thing that can be done is to fight against the recruitment of kids to die for the lies.

To Youth in High School Now:

What are you going to stand for? As school starts back up, look around at the world that our generation is going to inherit.

Over 1 million Iraqis are dead in the war, and 5 million have been forced to leave their homes. Despite President Obama’s promise to remove US troops, he’s calling them advisors while leaving them in Iraq. The war in Afghanistan, which we’re told is the “good war” where the “real” terrorists are, is going into its ninth year. It’s based on lies, just like the war in Iraq. What the United States is doing there is horrible and brutal, torturing people and bombing civilians while they sleep, just like the war in Iraq.

Is this OK because Obama -- and not Bush -- is in charge?

Obama sent 21,000 more troops to kill and die in Afghanistan, and plans to increase the size of the military by 92,000. Where are these soldiers going to come from? They are your classmates and friends, your brothers and sisters.

This is why the military recruiters are everywhere these days – at school in the cafeteria, on college campuses, at the mall, in the video games and the TV commercials… lying and trying to suck youth into fighting their wars. They roll up in their Hummers talking about strength and discipline, about how the military will give you a “life with a purpose”. But what kind of purpose?

You can kill and torture innocent people – and probably ruin your own life because of what you’ve seen and done – for an empire that causes misery for the planet, or… you can be about putting an end to all that and creating a better world.

Imagine if school administrations and teachers didn’t allow recruiters onto campus. Imagine if students looked at recruiters as the predators they are and no longer considered the Army a legitimate “career option.” We need a culture of defiance and resistance to military recruiters in high schools across the country.

Don’t be fooled! These wars are just as bad under President Obama as they were under George Bush. This culture of resistance needs to start October 6!

No matter where you are, you have a voice! Whether we resist military recruiters has everything to do with the future we’ll get. {more - Oct. 6 - the Eighth Anniversary of the Start of the U.S. War in Afghanistan}

  1. Back in the 70s I was all gung ho to join the military until during the medical the doctor sneakily rammed his finger up my butt launching me off the table in a startled state ready to push his head thru the door. I think they do that to see who is queer.
    No fuckingf way, I will not be treated in that fashion. The arrogance hubris a nd sense of entitlement of all things military is an utter disgrace. Almost all connected to the military industrial complex would be fired the first day on a REAL job... Hut two three four I'll put your head thru the goddamnn door.

  3. It's kind of a refreshing break in the day when a stranger walks up and jams his finger up your anus, don't you think?

  4. Didn't General Westmoreland say the South Vietnamese could handle their own security, so why are we sending more troops and money?

  5. The US and others have enormous debts so the best thing to do is kill the creditors.

    'Silent weapons for Quiet Wars' gives some explanation of this


    cheers
